Windows 7: BSOD occurring randomly

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
 
 
BSOD occurring randomly

Ran Memtest86+ but no errors were detected; I've also tried updating a few drivers but so far nothing's worked. Sometimes I get the BSOD; other times my computer just restarts randomly. I don't remember installing anything recently that could be the cause of this.

I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1. The original OS was Vista; 7 was obtained via an upgrade disk. My system is two years old. Since I don't have the retail disk, I haven't re-installed Windows or anything like that.

Thanks in advance for any help~

Old drivers and your Symantec (three years old)

These need updating
Code:

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads


I would remove and replace the Symantec with Microsoft Security Essentials.

BSOD occurring seemingly randomly.
I can't think of any recent programs or updates I've downloaded that seem to be linked to this BSOD. As said in the subject it seems to be happening randomly. My laptop is normally very healthy, CPU runs very low, etc.

Randomly occurring BSOD, becoming more frequent
This computer's first BSOD was a few months ago, but they have been getting more frequent, along with random freezes. They usually come in succession, so I will get 2 to 3 BSODs in an hour and then none for a few days. Thanks. Windows 7 Profession 64 bit, full retail version Windows...
